About Us


Who we are

Action for Global Health (AfGH) is a broad European network of development and health organisations advocating for European governments to play a more proactive role in enabling developing countries to meet the right to health for all and the Health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Established in 2006, today AfGH is active in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, the UK and Brussels - and has over 50 member NGOs across these countries. 


Our approach

We support the universal right to health around the world. Better health policies can help to eradicate poverty and promote human rights. 

AfGH advocates for the implementation of common principles and basic measures that will improve health policies and enable universal access to health care in developing countries as a way to eradicate poverty and promote human rights


Our work

AfGH works on broad health and health systems issues with a focus on the quantity and quality of development assistance for health and acceleration of progress towards improved health outcomes. 

The network acts to integrate horizontal, health systems concerns and targeted, disease-specific concerns and applies issues relating to these to aid volumes and aid effectiveness.

At AfGH we focus our advocacy work on two goals: financing for health and universal health coverage.

Making UHC a reality

Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is a core issue at the heart of Action for Global Health's campaigning and policy work.
